...even worse to watch. It was excruciating watching Great Britain - no Team GB here - being thwarted by their own success in the men's road race on the first full day of the Olympics. Not just because Mark Cavendish didn't have a chance to win.
...what happened there then. Keith Richards doesn't look right with bright white perfect gnashers. It's not rock and or roll.

...Rodney. John Sullivan who died last week was responsible for two and more of the funniest moments in TV history.
... isn't that what ITV kept telling you? Nobody mentioned it at The Lane as Spurs beat Charlton with reasonable ease after the half-time introduction of Luka Modric which everyone had to suffer listening to on the radio.
...very happy. Wait shouldn't that be the other way round? FIFA execs made Russia and Qatar happy after their names were pulled from the envelopes telling us who would host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
